I saw Logan.  I thought it was really good, if a little hard to watch in places.

You could really tell that since Deadpool did well despite an R rating the studios decided they could just do whatever they wanted, which... Well, I think it's a good thing in the sense that "PG-13 on a technicality" movies are sort of uncomfortable for me (as if the lack of blood splatters or whatever makes a high body count somehow more okay than otherwise), but on the other hand X-Men has always had a bit of a tone problem- with one movie in the series always radically different from another- and I don't think this is going to help.  Like are they just going to pretend they never made a movie like this the next time they want to do a more classic X-Men movie? Because you know they will eventually.  And when they have Magneto moving the latest famous landmark with dramatic hand gestures, it's going to be rather silly in comparison to this.

Anyway, it was really great to see an X-Men movie really work through the consequences and logical next steps to the kind of things that typically happen in these movies, and I'd recommend seeing it as long as you know it's going to be really different than usual.   I just kind of doubt that the people behind these films will really want to honor those decision going forward.
